Martin has practiced all week, but will likely split carries at less than 100%. You like the matchup against ATL, but on a Thursday Night, with uncertain health there are better options
  
Staff Rankings
FFLockerRoom
Foster has been outstanding two weeks into the season and the Texans should rely on it's best player for as long as he's healthy. He's got a great matchup against the Giants this week and should see 20+ touches easy.
It was thought that Martin was held out of the week 2 game to give him a few extras days of rest before this weeks Thursday Night game. The problem with that is backup Bobby Rainey came in and dominated. Martin might just 'miss' one more week.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
I don't think Foster can stay healthy for 16 games at 25 carries per game, but ride the hot hand while you can. He is a RB1 against the Giants this week.
Martin is questionable, but he should play against an Atlanta team that is allowing the most points to fantasy running backs over the first two weeks.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
G-Men can be stingy on defense and it's on the road but Foster IS Houston's offense, so hard to bet against him.
Martin's health is key here and road game isn't easy, but Falcons can be run on pretty easily.
